Debate in English (英語で討論)
- 1 ：名無しさん＠英語勉強中：2005/07/11(月) 19:27:27
- Let's debate on it.
- 2 ：名無しさん＠英語勉強中：2005/07/11(月) 19:28:47
- The 1st Prososition:
"A thread for debate is helpful to English learners on 2ch BBS users."
State which side (pro or con) you stand and make your argument.
- 3 ：名無しさん＠英語勉強中：2005/07/11(月) 19:29:57
- You usually don't get people with enough intelligence for debate on this board anyway.
- 4 ：名無しさん＠英語勉強中：2005/07/11(月) 19:53:20
- Any English on this board will probably be helpful to at least some
English learners in some sort of way. Therefore a debate thread
by simple virture of being in English will be beneficial.
- 5 ：名無しさん＠英語勉強中：2005/07/11(月) 20:01:14
- It`s hard to just say "Let`s debate" without a good topic.
I think that debates are only fun when you actually get
into it so we would need to find a good topic before anything.
- 6 ：名無しさん＠英語勉強中：2005/07/11(月) 20:04:30
- Then, the second one: Who is the cuttiest Japanese girl?
- 7 ：名無しさん＠英語勉強中：2005/07/11(月) 20:27:27
you can't debate that because its totally based on personal opinion
without substantiating facts. There is no way you can legitmately argue
that one girl is cuter than another. Debating personal perfences just turns into verbal (or in this case text) insults being
- 8 ：名無しさん＠英語勉強中：2005/07/11(月) 20:33:21
I agree with you wholeheartedly.
But I have a feeling that >>6 made its proposal as a mere joke.
Let's see what does >>6 have to say for itself.

- 11 ：Urban Predator：2005/07/11(月) 22:06:50
I am on the pro-side.
Debate sessions on the Internet can be more productive than the ordinary ones in the aspect
of variety of participants. 2ch BBS is open for any PC users around the world who have access to the Net
which would enable them to disscuss on a certain issue in much broader perspectives.
Yet this merit of easy accessibility can also be a demerit for it will be easy for the
ill-willed or bad mannered posters to make a mess as they likely to do.
However, whether this disadvantageous factor surpass the merit given above remains skeptical.
- 12 ：名無しさん＠英語勉強中：2005/07/12(火) 00:45:14
I think if you get to pick the side then you agree on being 2nd in presenting your argument.
- 13 ：名無しさん＠英語勉強中：2005/07/12(火) 02:12:18
Do we have to strickly obey the rules of debate?
In that case, the rules should have been specified before starting to debate.
Personally I think strick obedience to the rules makes this thread less exciting.
- 14 ：名無しさん＠英語勉強中：2005/07/12(火) 02:15:12
I know it's hard to be a hicky , but next time try to not creat new stupid thread!
we already have 3 english threads!
- 15 ：名無しさん＠英語勉強中：2005/07/12(火) 02:21:47
- i am hikikomori
please dont be rude to me. last time i leaved my house was february
- 16 ：名無しさん＠英語勉強中：2005/07/12(火) 02:58:47
Not a single step outside? You are... SOME stuff!
- 17 ：名無しさん＠英語勉強中：2005/07/12(火) 02:59:48
Ok, then I will do the negative.
What makes you say that the variety of participants make the debate more productive?
Suppose 3 kinds of a debate by 3 participants.
1st one is by 1 elementary school student, 1 high school student, and 1 college student.
2nd one is by 1 so called "kousotu", 1 business man, and 1 hosewife.
3rd one is by 3 college students.
4th one is by 3 elementary school students.
Which do you think would be the best debate?
I think 3rd and 4th one are.
The reason is that debaters must be as logical or educated as other debaters.
You have to understand the arguments at the same logical level to refute them.
For example, it may sound very convincing and a good argument for elementary students to say "My mom told me it's good to debate in 2ch.".
On the other hand, this argument doesn't make sense at all to a college student.
Therefore, even if there is no ill-mannered participants, debating on 2ch sucks because of its variety of participants.
- 18 ：17：2005/07/12(火) 03:04:37
- It may be helpful to have varied participants if you are looking for a good answer.
However, debate is just a game to win or lose, not a game to find a good general answer with lots of view aspects.
If you aim at the latter, don't debate but discuss.
>>Suppose 3 kinds of a debate by 3 participants.
sry, 4 kinds
- 19 ：名無しさん＠英語勉強中：2005/07/12(火) 03:12:42
Then specify the rules first.
- 20 ：名無しさん＠英語勉強中：2005/07/12(火) 06:20:00
Yukorin is the hottest here in this board, but in my opinion
Abiru You looks exotic and attactive. She says her looks are similar
to people from west Asia, and I think it's true. Abiru is beautiful.
- 21 ：名無しさん＠英語勉強中：2005/07/12(火) 06:22:23
fuck off and die!
- 22 ：名無しさん＠英語勉強中：2005/07/12(火) 06:48:43
This is the thread for debates. So you must not belittle it.
- 23 ：名無しさん＠英語勉強中：2005/07/12(火) 12:36:05
but as stated in >>7 debating preference in idols cannot doesn't work.
so therefore it is okay to belittle >>20.
And besides what >>20 said has nothing to do with debating, he is just
stating personal opinion without facts to back it up. There is no solid
arguement, so it does not belong in the debating thread. So once again,
it is okay to belittle him
- 24 ：名無しさん＠英語勉強中：2005/07/12(火) 12:39:21
- Debate on yukorin is worthless, it's just wasting time. NEETs have free time at all times, so they like talking about yukorin.
I think so.
- 25 ：名無しさん＠英語勉強中：2005/07/12(火) 16:38:46
- So all of us have to stick to Yukorin.
Debating who is the best is worthless, but we need to discuss what's
best about her-her face, her voice, or her figure. That's our topic.
- 26 ：名無しさん＠英語勉強中：2005/07/12(火) 16:52:12
- WHO THE HELL IS YUKORIN?
CUT IT OUT!
- 27 ：名無しさん＠英語勉強中：2005/07/12(火) 17:06:14
- Yamazaki Mami has got popular among English learners in Japan.
It's because she is learning the language as well. As for me,
I don't know about her very much except she appears in some TV
commercials and the TV show in which she is studying.
What's your opinion on her? What is the key to success if a girl
want to be a talent?
Having cute faces is always needed, but is that all?
- 28 ：名無しさん＠英語勉強中：2005/07/12(火) 17:45:08
First-rate idols are all cute. But it's quite a different
story when it comes to actresses. Looking around on the street,
you can be sure not all female are beautiful. TV dramas which
describes everyday life need such a female.
- 29 ：名無しさん＠英語勉強中：2005/07/12(火) 18:14:43
Fuck off and die!
that has nothing to do with debating, go back the the normal chatter
thread if you want to talk about such stupid things
- 30 ：Urban Predator：2005/07/12(火) 18:41:47
To begin with, I see no definite rules of "debate" defined above and it prompted me to argue in a somewhat off-hand manner.
I do not deny that debate is an intellectual game (or sport) of win or lose, but as there's no specific ruls given to us
I thought it might as well be a place for exchanging of ideas and counter arguments.
Secondly, your theory in which you argued that debate on 2ch BBS sucks for its variety of participants, seems to be based on
an assumption that 2ch BBS is inhabited by unintelligent users who cannot say anything productive.
I cannot give you hard evidence which proves my point but I've seen many intellectual posters making thought-provoking remarks here on
2ch BBS, and that includes you.
Last and certainly least, I do not wish to talk about Yukoirn.
- 31 ：名無しさん＠英語勉強中：2005/07/12(火) 18:49:10
- You are excellent!
- 32 ：Pussy Cat：2005/07/12(火) 19:34:16
- GET A FUCK OFF !!
- 33 ：Urban Predator：2005/07/12(火) 19:40:08
I'm afraid to say but I do not understand what you mean.

- lucky people are not actually lucky.
- 35 ：名無しさん＠英語勉強中：2005/07/13(水) 08:06:14
You meant idols must be cute, didn't you?
Then I agree to your idea. I haven't seen ugly idols on TV.
- 36 ：名無しさん＠英語勉強中：2005/07/13(水) 08:29:49
- In other threads we take with a grain of salt what UP says.
He's somewhat crazy.
- 37 ：名無しさん＠英語勉強中：2005/07/13(水) 08:44:02
- A big disputable topic: Idols farts or never farts?
- 38 ：名無しさん＠英語勉強中：2005/07/13(水) 09:00:23
Don't be stupid. Everyone farts. Its a natural function of the
body and cannot really be helped.
This thread has just turned into another chatter thread. I dobut
debating is possible...
- 39 ：名無しさん＠英語勉強中：2005/07/13(水) 09:24:50
- You said everyone farts but then how about Jesus Christ?
Did he fart as well as us? The God farts?
I don't think so. Idols never farts. That's my argument.
- 40 ：名無しさん＠英語勉強中：2005/07/13(水) 11:17:31
- It's no use to go on debating unless someone specifies the rules.
If nobody specifies the rules, then we can use this thread for
discussing various topics (except for topics on idols and dirty talks).
- 41 ：名無しさん＠英語勉強中：2005/07/13(水) 11:28:56
If Jesus was a human man then yes he farted. If he was the son of God, then
I don't know. To answer you would first have to prove that Jesus
exsisted, and secondly some how prove that God exsists so what you
said is really just bullshit.
Plus why are you comparing idols to God or to gods? You make no
concrete connection between the two. You give no
explaination of your argument, so you really have no argument.
So, sorry but you're wrong. Because idols are human and humans fart
- 42 ：名無しさん＠英語勉強中：2005/07/13(水) 11:30:21
- Don't mix idols with actresses.
Abiru You is not an idol, she's a good actress who acted in a
film produced by Horiemon.
- 43 ：名無しさん＠英語勉強中：2005/07/13(水) 11:35:46
So, Oguro Yuko, MEGUMI and Ono Mayumi has "acted" as well.
Abiru is basically an idol or a talent. I wouldn't really call
her an actress
- 44 ：名無しさん＠英語勉強中：2005/07/13(水) 11:36:45
What it boils down to is idols fart because they are human being?
I'm sorry but you're so wrong I was dumbfounded.
Let me put it in perspective.
The god never farts because he's not human as Yukorin, who's from
the Korin planet, doesn't. As you know Yukorin is an famous idol.
So you couldn't say idols never fart.
- 45 ：名無しさん＠英語勉強中：2005/07/13(水) 11:38:48
- 46 ：名無しさん＠英語勉強中：2005/07/13(水) 11:40:15
How do you difine girls as idols?
And what are actresses? You should explain it, dude.
- 47 ：名無しさん＠英語勉強中：2005/07/13(水) 11:43:28
- Oh, you are wrong.>>44
Yokorin said her fart smelt like vanilla. So Korinian people
also fart like us, though theirs are very aromatic.
- 48 ：名無しさん＠英語勉強中：2005/07/13(水) 11:49:04
If she said so, I have to admit that Yukorin also fart..
People say other idols never fart and I believe it's true, though.
- 49 ：名無しさん＠英語勉強中：2005/07/13(水) 11:52:58
Face the reality. Idols are human girls, and their fart sometimes
smells awful like rotten fish, you know.
- 50 ：名無しさん＠英語勉強中：2005/07/13(水) 11:55:44
Unlike girls on the earth, Korinian girls' fart smells good.
- 51 ：名無しさん＠英語勉強中：2005/07/13(水) 11:59:01
He has no definition of the matter. Seems like he just wanted to
trick you. So it's best to ignore him.
- 52 ：名無しさん＠英語勉強中：2005/07/13(水) 12:11:17
- Do you still call a girl over 25 an idol?
I think actresses and idols have age limits. I mean,
as idols get older, they become an actress. Something like
wooms become butterflies.
- 53 ：名無しさん＠英語勉強中：2005/07/13(水) 12:56:11
but what about idols who never act? what happens when they turn
I would define an actress as a woman whose main occupation is acting
on stage, in film or on television. So idols are not actresses,
and neither is MEGUMI or Ono Mayumi since they're main jobs are as
talents or as gurave idols. Since Abiru Yu is also mainly a talent
I wouldn't call her an actress either.
you fuck off!
- 54 ：名無しさん＠英語勉強中：2005/07/13(水) 12:59:26
how can you compare Ogura Yuko to god?
And why keep lying to yourself. Yuko is just a human. she is not
an alien. And of course she farts because she is merely human.
You are just another pathetic fanboy and after she turns 25 you
won't care about her anyway.
- 55 ：名無しさん＠英語勉強中：2005/07/13(水) 13:02:03
- Well thanks to the idol fuckos the debate thread has turned into
yet another retarded chat thread. I swear that if I ever see Ogura Yuko
and Im going to slap her so hard for claiming that she is an alien
and making all you fuck-ups write about it here.
She needs to be slapped hard!
- 56 ：名無しさん＠英語勉強中：2005/07/13(水) 13:22:38
I swear that if I ever see Ogura Yuko
and Im going to slap her so hard
before making fun of anyone else, Ogura Yuko and Im going to-
makes no sense at all you should take out the 'and' if you don't I'll end up slapping you so hard lmao
- 57 ：名無しさん＠英語勉強中：2005/07/13(水) 15:09:06
what an Imao?
and the extra "and" is just a typo from typing too fast. Sorry Mr. Perfect.
And umm..what is your point exactly?
- 58 ：名無しさん＠英語勉強中：2005/07/13(水) 15:13:05
- I hate Yukorin
- 59 ：名無しさん＠英語勉強中：2005/07/13(水) 15:14:41
there should be an "'s" after the what. I don't want you making
a fuss over my typos again.
- 60 ：名無しさん＠英語勉強中：2005/07/13(水) 15:25:36
- Hey, idol otakus, go to the dirty talk thread!
- 61 ：名無しさん＠英語勉強中：2005/07/13(水) 15:27:00
- We won't stop debating about yukorin and idol.
- 62 ：名無しさん＠英語勉強中：2005/07/13(水) 15:28:40
Don't you understand you're not wanted on this thread?
- 63 ：名無しさん＠英語勉強中：2005/07/13(水) 15:33:02
- idols are our only medicines to make our misery weaker
- 64 ：名無しさん＠英語勉強中：2005/07/13(水) 15:34:02
but you're not debating, you're just talking about her and
spreading your opinions without any facts or ways to really argue that
what you are saying is right.
So you should leave.
- 65 ：名無しさん＠英語勉強中：2005/07/13(水) 15:34:47
okay. but not in this thread. go to dirty talk one or make a new one for your pleasure.
- 66 ：名無しさん＠英語勉強中：2005/07/13(水) 15:35:03
that is your problem. You don't need to talk about it here though
go back the normal chatter thread
- 67 ：名無しさん＠英語勉強中：2005/07/13(水) 15:37:28
they are not wanted on the "chat" thread, as well.
they should either go to dirty talk one or make a new one.
- 68 ：名無しさん＠英語勉強中：2005/07/13(水) 15:37:43
- I hate to have a chat on idol on dirty thread, that thread is only porn
- 69 ：名無しさん＠英語勉強中：2005/07/13(水) 15:39:09
I agree they should make their own.
but chatter thread has not set topic or format so they could go
there and talk about idols and those who don't like it can ignore
them and talk about something else
- 70 ：名無しさん＠英語勉強中：2005/07/13(水) 15:39:14
Then make a new thread. That's the only solution for you and us.
- 71 ：名無しさん＠英語勉強中：2005/07/13(水) 15:43:01
- We need to make our friendship deeper while enjoying about Fukakyon, Hasegawa kyoko and Mami Yamasaki
- 72 ：名無しさん＠英語勉強中：2005/07/13(水) 15:43:52
what is the difference? You only like to look at your idols that
you obsess over? You don't want to have sex with them? They are
not your fantasy? Dirty talk thread it suited for you
- 73 ：名無しさん＠英語勉強中：2005/07/13(水) 15:47:02
Set the rules! Specify them so we don't have the morons coming to this thread!
- 74 ：名無しさん＠英語勉強中：2005/07/13(水) 15:47:23
I like Fukada Kyoko and Hasegawa Kyoko. They're not idols in my
opinion. But I don't want to talk about them. Especially not in
a debate thread.
Go somewhere else to do that
- 75 ：名無しさん＠英語勉強中：2005/07/13(水) 15:52:36
- I like a movie called shimotsuma story with fukada kyoko
- 76 ：名無しさん＠英語勉強中：2005/07/13(水) 16:00:53
Is fuka kyon an idol or an actress?
What do you think about the difference between those occupations?
- 77 ：名無しさん＠英語勉強中：2005/07/13(水) 16:08:08
Fukada Kyoko should be categorized as an idol because she does
various things such as singing, acting and what not. But all of her
activities comes from her cuteness which is required to be an idol.
On the other hand, Hasegawa Kyoko was a model before becoming an actress.
We have to make it clear what idols/actresses are like.
- 78 ：名無しさん＠英語勉強中：2005/07/13(水) 16:08:15
Idols mostly just stand around and smile or wear bikinis or
sometimes they are like talents. sometimes they get to act.
Actresses main job is to act. they appear in magazines for PR and
I don't really see how Fukada Kyoko is an idol?
Would you call Kouyuki and idol? or Nakama Yukie?
- 79 ：名無しさん＠英語勉強中：2005/07/13(水) 16:10:46
She has given up singing. What else has she done?
And besides her main activity has always been acting. She is not
an idol. And all actresses in Japan who are not playing the role
of mothers or grandmothers are cute. Maybe there are some plain
looking actresses but their numbers are very small. So I think
being cute has nothing to do with seperating idol from actress

your defintion of an idol seems to be outdated if you say that idols
are cute girls who do various things. Those days are over I think.
Yamasaki Mami really doesn't do anything but you would call her
and idol correct? Idols seem to just be cute girls that really
don't have any special skills or talents. It is only sometimes
that they end up doing things like singing or acting, but it
is never their main job.
- 83 ：名無しさん＠英語勉強中：2005/07/13(水) 16:16:27
- This thread has become completely worthless.
Fuck you idol idiots.
- 84 ：名無しさん＠英語勉強中：2005/07/13(水) 16:17:18
I like your idea. I couldn't have explained it better myself.
Yes, idols does lots of things, wearing bathing suits.
So I'd call a such girl an idol.
Actresses don't do that, especially in cheesecakes or something like that.
I guess you'll agree that Fukada Kyoko WAS an idol, at least
before that shimotsuma story, right?
- 85 ：名無しさん＠英語勉強中：2005/07/13(水) 16:19:41
Tell us about your diffinition, please.
- 86 ：名無しさん＠英語勉強中：2005/07/13(水) 16:19:59
I always thought Fukada Kyoko was just a drama actress before the
Shimotsuma. Like Ayase Haruka is now, or something like that.
I never really thought of Fukada Kyoko as an idol. Maybe im wrong

I didn't know she sings. And I don't count smiling and wearing
bikinis as doing anything, even though it is her main occupation.
She basically does nothing that requires talent or skill.
- 91 ：名無しさん＠英語勉強中：2005/07/13(水) 16:30:04

- Here's a topic for debate: Do you think that there's a gap between how Japanese people perceive themselves and how they are perceived by people outside Japan?
I have a feeling that Japanese people tend to think that they are at the centre of the Earth and that somehow everybody would have some interest in them, but the reality
is that most people outside of Japan don't know much about or care about Japan. Japanese people have a weird habit of trying to explain their so-called uniqueness to foreigners,
but noone cares
- 97 ：名無しさん＠英語勉強中：2005/07/13(水) 16:37:34
- Let me put together your opinions.
1. Idols are people with no skills such as singing and acting.
2. Fukada Kyoko sings well and acts nicely.
3. On the other side of the coin, Yamazaki Mami doesn't.
4. So we should call Y.Mami an idol, but not F.Kyoko.
Is that right?
- 98 ：名無しさん＠英語勉強中：2005/07/13(水) 16:38:29

- does there really need to be a definition of idol?
It just seems that Japan has more useless people who are a little
bit famous than anywhere else in the world.
And in America and England they don't consider people like Hilary Duff
an idol. They consider them as singers (pop stars) or actresses
or sometimes they just say singer/actress. Japan is the only
place the concept of idol and its stupid

Britney is pretty and sings well, and what's more, people
call her an idol. We have to re-difine what it takes to be
- 120 ：名無しさん＠英語勉強中：2005/07/13(水) 16:51:22
yeah she's pretty
- 121 ：名無しさん＠英語勉強中：2005/07/13(水) 16:51:23
that is right.
But she is not considered an idol. Maybe in Japan but in the rest
of the world she is just considered a pop-star. Only Japan has
the idea of idols. Only Japan pays girls to do nothing but smile
and wear bikinis and makes them sort of famous
- 122 ：名無しさん＠英語勉強中：2005/07/13(水) 16:52:50
She played a good teacher, didn't she?
- 123 ：名無しさん＠英語勉強中：2005/07/13(水) 16:53:02
nobody outside of Japan calls Britney an idol.
And she actually does not sing that well. Her producers use 3 different
vocal mixing machines to make her sound as she does.

No you're wrong! I am an american. And we don't use the word
idol. Maybe some fansites call her a pop-idol but no one would ever use that
in a conversation. Besides in the meaning of pop-idol and the way
Japanese use the term idol seem really different.

I think there is a huge gap between how we perceive ourselves and how foreign poeple
perceive us. And I also think that Japanese people are often too self-conscious of
ourselves and try to explain our way of thinking without being wanted to do so.
Indeed, nationalism carried to excess shows unhealthiness of mind but the right amount
of love and dignity toward the "unique" culture of ours is what motivates us to
strive for the better future.
- 140 ：名無しさん＠英語勉強中：2005/07/13(水) 17:05:20

- 142 ：名無しさん＠英語勉強中：2005/07/13(水) 17:07:32
it's only because ASIA and WEST is two diffrent worlds. western people dont understand

I don't like MLB. It's not worthwhile to watch it.
If there're not Japanese players in the league, we don't
bother to watch any game because it's boring.
- 147 ：名無しさん＠英語勉強中：2005/07/13(水) 17:11:59
its different because the basis for a POP-idol is that fact that
you are a POP singer. First and foremost you job is to sing POP-music.
Idol in Japan just means a cute girl that does basically nothing.
and in America they don't exsist nor does the concept of them exsist.
It seems only in Japan are young girls able to make a short career
of doing nothing more than smiling when told to. That is the difference.
Do you get it?
but in regards to screaming little girls, and idol nerds I agree
with you that they are bascially the same.

many idols have a singing career too. even yuko ogura! and they starring in movies
and TV dramas.
but in west there are a lot of fashion models who does nothing. what do you
think about it? and have a tons of fans!
as for me
I think fashion models is the people with a lot of skill in desing and with
very good taste, but they use their skill on themself. turning themselfs into
some kind of art.
- 152 ：名無しさん＠英語勉強中：2005/07/13(水) 17:15:28

One dictionary close at my hand difines the term "unique" as:
being the only one of its kind; having no like, equal or parallel.
Well then, what is not unique about Japan?"
- 160 ：名無しさん＠英語勉強中：2005/07/13(水) 17:21:24
- ryoko hirosue is already played a role in a popular EU movie
- 161 ：名無しさん＠英語勉強中：2005/07/13(水) 17:21:27
- 142: By saying that Westerners don't understand Asian cultures you are actually implying that they are unique.
Anyway, it sees to me that it is more of a national obsession of Japanese people to try and constantly define who they are by making endless comparisons with other countries.
The term 我々日本人。。。is often used to try and portray some homogenised version of Japanese culture or 'Japanese perspective', but the reality is that there is a lot more cultural diversity in Japan
than most Japanese people are aware of.

No Yuko released a single that displayed her horrible singing voice
in the hopes the all her creepy fans would buy it. That is not a
singing career. And yes some of them are allowed to act, not because
they have talent because of what they look like and how many fans they
already have, in most cases.
Fashion models in America usually only have fans once they become
"super models." I don't know how they do that. A fashion models job
is showcase a designer and like you said turn themselves into art in a sense,
that is a little different from standing around in a
bikini or smiling when told to. But they sort of similar i guess.
My real point is that in America we don't have the concept or idea of
idols like Japan does. We have plenty of models who are photographed in
bikinis and smile but we just call them models and no one knows who
they are unless they somehow get an acting or singing job. The we either
call them singers or actresses.

- The question is not whether or not there are some unique aspects of Japanese culture, the question is why this issue is always on Japanese peoples minds?
Why is there always this need to try and distinguish ourselves from other countries. It is definetely strange for foreigners when Japanese are always trying to emphasise their uniqueness.
- 168 ：名無しさん＠英語勉強中：2005/07/13(水) 17:26:05

- 170 ：名無しさん＠英語勉強中：2005/07/13(水) 17:28:05
It's because some foreigners often points out some differences

- 171 ：名無しさん＠英語勉強中：2005/07/13(水) 17:30:32
- well i dont know.
but in west(not only west, in the whole world)
there are a lot of talent-less popstars who can't do anything
and the whole concept of popstars is the making money. same for idols.
so I dont see very big difference.

well you have large resident korean populations,

they are really Japanese, but yet they are a part of Japan.
Plus many statements that try explain Japan as unique make it
sound like all Japanese think and act the same. If this was true
there would be no freeters or NEETs, etc.

- 179: Yes, but this American way can be applied to anybody regardless of ethnicity. Japan's conceptions of homogeniety are more often than not based in theories of biological determinism.
There is an ideology in Japan that conveniently uses the myth of a Japanese 'race' to create a country of people that are obedient and easily manipulated.
- 183 ：名無しさん＠英語勉強中：2005/07/13(水) 17:39:52
- So, let's go back to idols.
Yukorin is the icon of idols in Japan. No doubt about it.
She is cute but couldn't do anything special. But that
makes Japanese males feel superior and so she's popular.
The less wise, the better.

- 183: Yes, I strongly agree with you. But what I have in mind is if a cute girl
is talented, she couldn't make it as an idol. Britney sure is not wise and behaves
herself, though. Maybe it's true everywhere idols' popularity depends on

- If all of the English teachers in Japan thought like Japanese there would be nothing you could learn from each other.
If those teachers are just being ethnocentric and condascending I understand your feelings, but in my experience, foreigners often
help us notice things about ourselves that we had forgotten. One of my old teachers knew more about traditional Japanese culture than I did.

Becky, as everyone know, speaks both English and Japanese because

I like her a lot.

- 261 ：名無しさん＠英語勉強中：2005/07/14(木) 16:23:56
- Yeah, I know she said so, but to the contrary her English skill is something.
I watched her interviewing an overseas singer on TV and of course she
talked fluently with him, so I guess she's reserved or so wise that she
tried to let Japanese people with no English skills feel releaved.
Becky knows a lot in Japan. If she says she's a good English speaker,
lots of the Japanese people will feel jelous and say something derogatory
to her... I'm very confident she's better than, say, at least, those
Japanese talents who appears on TV saying they can speak the language.
Don't you think so?
- 262 ：名無しさん＠英語勉強中：2005/07/14(木) 21:11:44
I agree. She speaks English better than most Japanese people.
- 263 ：名無しさん＠英語勉強中：2005/07/14(木) 21:45:15
- I don't know nothing about Becky.
But the proposition seems to concern general public and non-native English speakers.
Of course if you have a native speaker of English as at least one parent,
you will be able to speak English much more fluently than others.
That is, however, not realistic for most Japanese.
I am in favor of the introduction of English to elemantary school children.
The younger you are, the more you can make yourself familiar with a foreign language,
especially with the pronunciation,
since the pronunciation of English is very difficult for Japanese.
Don't you think it much better to familiarize yourself with the English pronunciation
at as early a stage of learning as possible?
- 264 ：名無しさん＠英語勉強中：2005/07/14(木) 22:13:13

get language skill. it's crazy.
- 265 ：Urban Predator：2005/07/15(金) 06:56:27
I'm on the neutral ground.
I am no expert on English education so I can't say what is best for children concerning English education.
But I can say that the most important thing is not how early we give children English education,
but how we motivate them to learn the language.
- 266 ：名無しさん＠英語勉強中：2005/07/15(金) 10:01:23

As long as ONLY language skills go, I wouldn't, either.But language is one reason.

her mother love his father (of course, he's English). Language is not a goal.

I am going to be on the negative side.
I think earlier English education is not necessary.
As >>263 said, the early education would have an advantage of making children
familiar with English pronunciation. But, pronunciation is no more than an aspect
of the English language.
What you should be concerned about is what you present in English, not how you
speak English nor even who you get married with. We already have a lot of things
which we want our children to tell foreigners, such as Japanese technologies, history,
philosophy, artistic sense and you name it.

- The 3rd Proposition:
Smoking in public should be prohibited by law.
State which side (pro or con) you stand and make your argument.
- 272 ：名無しさん＠英語勉強中：2005/07/21(木) 19:58:42
Okay. I'll take the con-side,
though it looks like my choice is wrong, because it has too weak a ground.
Smoking in public shouldn't be prohibited by law.
Smoking is one of the many habits or tastes which have been accepted in a lot of societies
for a very long time.
This fact makes smoking part of the culture which has allowed its members to do it.
Not only has it taken root in everyday life of ordinary people, but it has also been depicted
in a lot of pictures, novels and movies.
Prohibiting smoking in public by law will destroy such part of our culture.
Second, if we think it wrong and decide to prohibit it, what effect will the prohibition bring about?
See the famous Prohibition enacted and enforced in the United States in the 1920s.
The prohibition of smoking in public will have the same effect and cause some serious crimes,
perhaps even the rise of new maffia, which will make our life so dangerous and vulnerable.
Considering those grounds mentioned above, the prohibition of smoking in public is the wrong way.

I don't understand why ban on public smoking make people commit crimes.
We are not talking about total ban on tabacco.
You just can't smoke in restraunts but you can where smoking is allowed.
You know, more and more restraunts, office and public places are already prohibitting ban on tabacco.
I've never heard such measures are increasing crimes.
Did your office mate go mad and start to murder people only because your office started to ban public smoking?

- 291 ：名無しさん＠英語勉強中：2005/10/25(火) 03:41:10

High school or lower grade students can have their cellular phone.
First, cellular phones has broaden children's ways of communications.
Not only do they remove the limitations of conventional ways of communications
in terms of time and space, but they have helped create new usage of written language.
Second, cellular phones help children and their parents to locate each other whenever or wherever
they are, which assures parents of their children's safety.
Although the time and money spent using cellular phones on "wasteful" game playing and
"meaningless" emailing are immense, the advantages mentioned above cannot be underestimated.

I shall make rebuttals on your argument:
> First, cellular phones has broaden children's ways of communications.
This merely points out that mobile phones provided new means of communication.
It must be noted that mobile phones have driven away the conventional ways of communication at the same time.
> Not only do they remove the limitations of conventional ways of communications
> in terms of time and space, but they have helped create new usage of written language.
In a bad way, yes.
> Second, cellular phones help children and their parents to locate each other whenever or wherever
> they are, which assures parents of their children's safety.
This is just a trivial advantage hardly merits the cost and other sacrifices.
> Although the time and money spent using cellular phones on "wasteful" game playing and
> "meaningless" emailing are immense, the advantages mentioned above cannot be underestimated.
Yes, there are advantages to kids owning cellular phones but you have to give statistical data that
support your statement. Merits must surpass the demerits.

Electronic dictionaries are a wonderful invention, but they have their
downsides as well. The best part of them is that they are fast, and if
you have a good one, you can get all of the meanings for a word, whereas
the paper dictionary may only have the most important ones. On the other
hand, one has to exhibit a higher mastery of the language to use them to
full effect...I had a translation professor accuse me of running my
entire assignment through Babelfish and not editing it, while I thought
I had been picking the right words.
The best solution is to use both - a paper dictionary is good where
it may not be best to get on the net (work) and an electronic when you
can sit down and really hammer on something for academic or personal

how do you know about Zidan's headbutt on the Worldcup final?
Zidan decided to retire from professional football after the Worldcup.
He was a player of Franch international and was the most great player
during two decades. He led Franch international to the final game.
When the game reacheaed at 110 minites, He fought with Materazzi and
shotted his head to Materazzi. Of cource, He took a read card then he
got out the game. His retirement game was suddenly sad end.
This problem is a controversy over the world. Perhaps, everybody might
know about this problem.
- 327 ：名無しさん＠英語勉強中：2006/07/16(日) 00:22:34
- Zidan said he shotted his head because Materazzi insulted his family two times.
If this is true, I think Zidan is not so wrong.
He could be patient to be insulted his own matter, but couldn't to his family matter.
By the way, he took "red" card, not "read" card.
- 328 ：名無しさん＠英語勉強中：2006/07/16(日) 00:47:47
- ...I reckon what Zidane did is still total shit,
considering that it was his last game.
How come people try to justify that red-card..?
Imagine if it wasn't Zidane. He definitely would be fucked by media.
Zidane just utilizes his big name. He is being so spoilt.

1) Statements on the topic should be written in English.
2) Statements should always be positive or negative, not in-between.
3) A debate will end with six statements: three positives and three negatives.
4) Comments on the debate or individual statements can be written in either 日本語 or in English.
5) You can comment on ongoing debates, but preferabley, AFTER the debate.
6) English correction is always welcome, but not in debating statements.

showing your positive or negative position. For example:
337 名前：名無しさん＠英語勉強中 投稿日：

Zidane's deed was totally allowable because...
You can add the number after "positive" (line 3) to 3
341 名前：名無しさん＠英語勉強中 投稿日：
On the topic >>332
Possitive 3: >>337 >>339
[Anchor-tag reference to previous statements will be usable in some cases]
My point is, Zidane's bald head was so perfect for headbutt, and...
You can add more statements if you want to continue, but the whole procedure
depends on others' comments. If many say "yamere" against you, you were probably
not convincing enough. That is, you lose on the debate.
The "odd-positive" and "even-negative" rotation is not a rule. It's a preferable order.
But we sitill need it just because a debate should be as rotational as possible.

- The point of view of allowable.
First, Zidan made mistake to behave his headbutt that hits Materazzi on
the world cup final. Although the reason is unclear in detail,
The action occured from his thinking of saving his family. If it
is true, the action might allow Zidan. His thinking tought us
strongly relationship between him and him family. It is great!
Second, FIFA punished Zidan to pay some money and to do social
action to take a red card on his final game. The final red card
is the worst memorial for him. This indicates to be the end of
pysically payoff for his punishement.
Finally, I guess Zidan has been bothering the action that is
good or bad forever. and also he might bother to break down his
final game. He brought him a heavy weight cross as well.
It is difficult for me to allow Zidan's action. Because whatever is
violence, it is bad! In particular, Zidan is the best player for a
decade from 1996. The best players make us efficient siginificantly.
Therefore they become good examples for children although I understand
his thinking for his family.

I don't agree with you. Many old people are respectable.
What do you mean by stupid? Not smart? wise? intelligent?
You might be too young to realize your stupidity.
- 345 ：名無しさん＠英語勉強中：2006/10/10(火) 22:07:56
Yes, many old people are respectable, expecially those who went through the hardship of the war are respectable, no doubt about it.
However, it is also true that there are many people (N.B. not everyone) who have stopped using their brain, obviously for a long time.
Those people only rely on the knowledge they acquired up to Uni. and never try to go beyond that.
Since they have stopped thinking seriously, they end up make stupid decisions.
I know I'm sounding like beating around the bush, that's because in order to make more clear explanation, I need to use some examples,
but unfortunately, that's no possible due to the nature of the Internet.
So my point is, those who have stopped using their brain become stupid, and the longer one stops thinking seriously,
the more stupid one gets, thus many old people are stupid.
- 346 ：名無しさん＠英語勉強中：2006/10/10(火) 22:58:59

Commercialization of Christmas by non-Christian

- That is a typical case of asymmetric perception.
It does not matter wherther you mind it or not, yet Christians mind.
They simply wonder why do you 'celebrate' it.
If you say that it is a simply joyful amusement, their wonder goes
more serious and merely despise you from the bottom of their heart.
- 365 ：名無しさん＠英語勉強中：2006/12/21(木) 04:50:16
Hmm. Maybe what you say is true.
But isn't despising someone from the bottom of their heart
against the core principles of Christianity?
Also, many Christians celebrate Halloween.
This is a Pagan festival. And so in criticizing us
for celebrating Christmas, they are being hypocritical.

However, a main difference is that these past religions, say
some Celtic ones or Greco-Roman polytesism had abolished after

exsisting religion. Christian may ask you how you celebrate

I do understand what you mean, but I see no reason
why I should stop celebrating because I do enjoy it.
I mean no disrespect towards Christians, but if they
percieve it that way, then that isn't my fault.
Also, if they want to celebrate Buddha's birthday,
then they are welcome to do so in my opinion.
Furthermore, it was the Americans themselves that
commercialised Christmas (or Xmas) and made it seem "cool".
I believe that this is why it is popular now in Japan as
well as many other non-Christian countries.
And today, there are still Pagans but it is minority.

- As continiously mentioned, it does not matter if
you mind it or not and how do you evaluate your way.
This kind of asymetric perception is really something hard
to deal with. I can admit that your view typifies well
common Japanese feeling toward Christmas, and even for
Religion in general, as a Japanese. However these kind of
relatism is hardly accepted by THEM.
Sequently,the simple consequence will be that you continue
to celebrate in the Commercialistic way as a comsumer, while
billions of Christians and Muslisms keep lookig down you
to an extreme degree.

Like I said in another thread, Christmas is more of a
commercial holiday in this country now.
I will admit however that some traditional, right-wing
Christians don't like the fact that I celebrate Christmas.
I have to stress that they are in the minority though...

Right-wing Christians don't like the fact that anyone celebrates
that "heathen" version of Christmas. That is to give each other gifts, and
to be with each other, instead of attending mass, praying, thanking god
for jesus and all that. They greatly dislike the commersialized christmas,
as they feel it doesn't convey the god fear and obedience to their god, but
is about worshipping gifts and the heathen god/saint "Santa Claus".
"Terribly un-Christian," they say.

- I once visited Christian minority village in Malaysia.
The situation I saw there was awful one.
While Christian minorities(They are descendents of Portugues
and preserved their belief in Catholic in the Muslim country
handreds years against all desbenefits) and Indian Christians there
prey really sincerely and decently, Chinese just messed the celebration
making terrible noise.
They just flocked to drink and loon over the night, and
they enter decorated houses in the village without asking to
take keepsake pictures. For them, Christmas is nothing more
than an amusement. Although I am not a Christian and I believe
I am free from current anti-Chinese atmospher among the youth,
the Chinese way seemed to be very shallow and totally ridiculous.
Needless to say, Japanese spent Christmas day just like the
Chinese, possibly even much worth than them since Japanes Christmas
is even synonym of sexaholic night.

- Regarding the ways to celebrate Christmas, why don't we put it this way.
Although Sushi is a very traditional Japanese food, when it gets eaten
in other countries, its styles often get changed dramatically to adapt to
the needs of the country.
For e.g. in the U.S., they have invented "California Roll" which uses avocado
as an ingredient, which never existed in Japan.
As someone said, the "right-wing" sushi maestros might get offended, but in general,
we are happy that our traditional food is taking root in other countries.
Same goes for Chinese food, Italian food, etc. etc.
So I think it's OK for each country to have different ways to enjoy celebrating
religious ceremonies including Christmas.
